"We are spending the day trying to tie up with the right NGOs to set up a collection drive for Nepal at each show of the #UnbelievableTour. The idea is for you to bring anything you can spare to the show. Some medicine, some products (which we shall give you details on), a blanket, types of clothes etc and we are trying to find the right people to send it across to those who need it," reads Vir Das Facebook page.
